Man suing NBC because TV show made him vomit

Jan 6, 2005 — This idiot is suing NBC because Fear Factor "made him vomit." He says the show made his blood pressure rise which caused him to be lightheaded and dizzy.

"I didn't see the doorway on route to my room," his lawsuit reads. "I ran into it causing suffering, injury and great pain."

Jackson says:

Oh my gosh. The worst part is that if he gets the right lawyer, he could conceivably win.

rnewhouse says:

I don't know who I would be cheering for in this lawsuit. I HATE that show. And I hate that even though I choose not to watch it, I get to see commercials of people eating live slimy things and falling out of airplanes during shows I DO choose to watch.

I like two-thirds of the show. They always do two cool stunts with a gross thing in between them. The gross ones are tough for me to watch, especially if I've eaten recently, so I usually won't watch that. But the other stunts, when they actually have to perform a tough physical feat, can be cool. It's probably the only reality tv that I'll watch at all.

5 bucks says the lawsuit will be dismissed.

rnewhouse says:

I think the guy bringing the suit and the director of the show should be made to lie down on a set of train tracks blindfolded and surrounded by live slugs while a train is coming. The first one to get up and run loses.

Jackson says:

The same guy (a paralegal by the way) filed two lawsuits against tobacco companies that were both dismissed. Doesn't sound promising.

And his lawsuit was handwritten, btw.

Wirehead says:

In crayon.

Choice quote from another article:
In a brief telephone interview with Reuters, Aitken said, "I am not at liberty to discuss the complaint unless it is a paid-interview situation."
